Interior of Gingerbread House

 Before the rooftop assembly, I took the gingerbread house outside to snap a few photos as the sun was just rising.  It had snowed a good 3-4" over night.  The next photo makes me want to move into the house and curl up by the fire to admire the almost floor-to-ceiling decorated Christmas tree.

Breakfast is already on the table:  porridge and hot cocoa.  It's hard to tell, but the spoons are even hand painted with edible silver spray.  The tables and stools are baked gingerbread.  The rest of the accents are made from gum paste.
 From the outside, looking in:
The back of the gingerbread house.  The string of lights around the house were made by piping a string of green frosting the carefully placing candy coated mini-chips with tweezers.  It's not easy to grip that shiny finish with tweezers! 
 The dog is buried in a snow cave.
 View into the living room:

  1. Gorgeous! And way too much work for me ;-) But that's the kind of gingerbread house my mom used to make. She would build scale-models of church buildings.
